So much better than we expected!
My husband was concerned that since this is a foam bed, that we would be hot all night. But we have not had that issue at all. The cooling foam really works! We have very different body size/composition and we have both found the bed to be very comfortable and easy to sleep on. The mattress is not as deep as our old mattress was which is great for two reasons: 1 - our sheets fit better and don't slide off the corners; 2 - I don't need a step stool on my side of the bed when I want to sit on the edge of the bed or to assist with getting on the bed. It was nice to be able to take the short step we have away from the side of the bed. We have not had a chance to turn the bed yet, but this is recommended, just like it is with all new mattresses any more. And my husband was surprised to see the zipper to remove the cover was actually right on the underside edge of the bed. Our concern was that it would either be on the top, so we would feel it or around the side, where it could possibly pull apart from getting in and out of the bed. This is a very nice, and unexpected feature on this bed. To be able to take the cover off and wash it, is really an added bonus. The other thing we noticed was that this is not a plain white bed set. This set is very nice looking (not that I expect other people to see it). The cover of the mattress is gray with navy trim and is very soft itself. It doesn't feel like regular mattress fabric at all. It is very soft and not at all itchy. I wish all mattresses had a soft fabric on the top of the mattress. I don't normally sit on my mattress without a sheet on it, but when we were looking for the zipper to unzip the cover, we both noticed how very nice the material the mattress is made out of really is. For a foam only mattress, and what I have heard about them from other people, I definitely was surprised at the comfort and features on this bed. We will definitely stick with Serta whenever we look for beds in the future.
